HC Deb 21 February 1922 vol 150 cc1745-6W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been called to the judgment of the High Court, Chancery Division, in the case of Colborne v. Smith; and whether any steps are being or will be taken to render impossible in future such an occurrence as that upon which the judge commented?


My attention has been drawn to this case which referred to a. dispute between the builder and the purchaser of a house completed early last year as to the title to the increase in the private builder's subsidy. As the hon. Member is aware, the scheme has now been brought to an end and consequently there will be no ground for dispute of the kind in future.
